50,000 Kisses

 I would estimate that in the short 4 months of his life, Nathan has received about 50,000 kisses.
 It is quite plausible that we kiss these cheeks at least 200 times each day.
 100 more on that soft little head.
 Another 100 kisses on that little button nose!

And despite the hundreds of thousands of kisses I have bestowed on these little faces, it will never be enough to show them how much I love them.

Side note about the quilt- It was my very first quilt and one of the first sewing projects I attempted after getting a sewing machine for Christmas when I was 18.  I used a "Z Star" pattern from More Fat Quarter Quilts by M'liss Rae Hawley.  The fabric came from a set of fat quarters centered around planes/flight designs.  I tied it together at first, but then decided to try hand quilting a year or so later. It has a lot of mistakes personality, and I love it.

And in other news, Nathan rolled over from his back to his belly just over a week ago, and  a few days later, mastered rolling from his belly to his back.  Here is a quick slideshow of the process, so you can cheer for him too :)

And because I can't help myself.
 I have a cannibalistic baby.
 Mmm... Baby.  The other other white meat.
